TALISMAN ENERGY FLIES VISITING MEDIA AROUND TUMBLER RIDGE

July 30, 2003

It was a hectic week for the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation. With interest in the dinosaur excavation building, and the project gathering momentum as enters its final week, the provincial, national and international media came to visit. First it was Knowledge Network, (filming for BC Moments), then the Globe and Mail, and finally Discovery Channel.

They were taken in turn to the dinosaur footprint field sites and the excavation site, and to the exhibits on display in the Community Centre. Thanks to the generosity of Talisman Energy, they were all given in addition an unforgettable event to add to their footage – a helicopter ride over town and into the amphitheatre of Bergeron Falls (the highest accessible falls in northern BC) and into the spray of one of the world’s great falls, Kinuseo.

In recognition of this wonderful donation, the District of Tumbler Ridge made a presentation of a beautiful framed photo collage by photographer Fraser Hounsell, including a photo of the helicopter at the falls. The potential benefits of this donation are enormous for this idyllic community in its phenomenal rebound.
